Walking the News Steps in Edinburgh, just off the Royal Mile, is what initially inspired this collection: I was struck by the varied hues of the sandstone the seps were built from. This piece blends the sandstone shades in a light academia style bridging the gap between antique frame and contemporary art.
This collection brings the practically mythical allure of Edinburgh home and encourages you to take a closer look. This piece was inspired by this enchanting city and the idea that the more you take the time to look—at your life, at a problem, at a piece of art, at the big and little things—the more understanding you will find.
Built over centuries, defended by a fortress-castle atop an ancient volcanic rock, strolled by writers and poets and travelers, the city of Edinburgh begs you to look closer. At first glance, the sandstone of Old and New Town paints Edinburgh in a swath of beige. But the more you look, the more you wander the winding streets and beckoning closes, the more varied hues you start to notice. Each step oozes with charm and history. The Edinburgh Collection evokes the ambiance of old world charm and modern vibrance.
